Default nvidia-settings resets after switching resolution

Ubuntu Dapper 6.06 here, with a Geforce 6200 Turbocache connected excusively via S-Video to a TV (it's a MythTV box). Installed the latest nvidia drivers from the Ubuntu repositories, and everything is working fine, except for the following:

Whenever I run OpenGL applications, such as screensavers, games or the like (all of which work with gl acceleration as expected), all nvidia-settings are reset to their defaults, and running

$ nvidia-settings --load-config-only

, does absolutely nothing. I have to enter the nvidia-settings GUI, change something (anything!), and only then will I get my settings back.

Has anybody witnessed such behavior? Where should I be looking to debug this?

Thank you,

The behavior is witnessed when changing resolutions, not when running OpenGL apps.
